I find that I easily get confused when it comes to matching imprints to publishers, so I’ve decided to feature a publisher here on my blog every few weeks and give a little more detail about their US young adult and middle grade imprints.

This week’s featured publisher is HarperCollins Children’s Books, which is a division of HarperCollins.
